Making a bracelet is a great craft and hobby! It’s inexpensive, easy, and can be tailored to suit any taste. In addition to the many types of bracelets available, you also have different types of clasps, like lobster claws or a toggle clasp. With so many options available for you to choose from, it can be hard to understand which is best for your project. My goal is to eliminate that confusion and help you choose a clasp that will suit your needs.
Is one kind of clasp more expensive than another?
This can be a tricky question to answer, so let’s look at it in different ways. In general, the clasp is usually between 15% and 20% of the cost of the finished product. Some clasps will be more expensive because they are made from fine metals or stones, or because they are purchased from a specialty store rather than a large chain craft store.
The cost of the clasp itself is only part of what makes up the overall cost. You also have to consider how much time it takes you to prep your materials and assembles your bracelet. If you are an organized and fastidious person, then you may be able to make the most of your time and keep the cost of your finished bracelet to a minimum.
